Controversial former Titans captain Kevin Proctor has decided not to retire and has signed a two-year contract with English club Wakefield.
The 33-year-old’s career seemed almost over when he was sacked by the Gold Coast in July.
But when Wakefield offered a lucrative deal, the 22 Test veteran and former Melbourne Storm premiership winner decided to take up the challenge.

Proctor was sent off by the Titans under bizarre circumstances after posting a video of himself on social media vaping in a toilet cubicle inside the club’s hangars at half-time during a game against the Bulldogs.
The post was captioned “Not the halftime vape” and sent Instagram into a frenzy before Proctor eventually deleted it.
But it was too late for the Titans, who fined Proctor $15,000 before terminating his contract.
“His actions breached both NRL and stadium regulations,” Gold Coast said in a statement.
Kiwi-born Proctor played nearly 300 NRL games for the Storm and Titans.
